Last night, Elliott woke up just before I climbed into bed. He and Emmett had been camping out in his room. Elliott had a bad dream and couldn’t go back to sleep.
I finally had Elliott just crash in Emmett’s bed.
About 45 minutes later, I woke up out of a dead sleep, choking. I literally couldn’t breathe.
I wasn’t choking on anything, however, my airway was completely occluded.
The only reason Lizze woke up was because I was flailing around, half on the bed and half on the floor. I honestly thought I was going to die.
The entire incident lasted about 1 minute but that was the longest minute of my life.
Finally, my airway began to open and I couldn’t breathe once again. I happened to look over where Elliott was sleeping and he had witnessed the whole thing. He had a look of horror on his face and he was quite shook up.
I believe what happened was that I was choking on post nasal drip. I think it was just one of those freak things that just happen.
Needless to say, I didn’t sleep very well.
I’m very grateful to still be here today, even though it’s a Monday.
